When can I expect my order?


We aim to dispatch your orders each week day within 24 hours (if in stock).


e.g. if ordered in the morning we target ourselves to get your play mat or toys on to the couriers van that afternoon (Monday to Friday). However please bear with us if we take an extra day especially in busy times. 


Don't forget our gift vouchers are sent by email so there will be no waiting on the courier!


England, Scotland & Wales:

If you live within mainland UK (not including Scottish highlands, islands) then, on our standard delivery, you can expect your play mat 1-3 days from your order date (not including weekends). 


When you get your DPD alert, you can ask them to re-deliver on a different nominated day within the next week (Mon-Fri).


Deliveries to the Scottish Highlands, Isles generally arrive within 3-5 days.  

We can NOW ship to Northern Ireland!!  Please add items to your basket to check the shipping rates for either toys or play mats. 


Ireland / Europe

After the significant changes in 2020/21 we took the tough decision to stop shipping to destinations outside of Great Britain (we've now opened NI).


We never want to disappoint those of you who are keen to get your hands on a Munchkin & Bear play mat. However the service and customs clearance isn't reliable and the experience is far from one we want for our customers.


What are the shipping costs? 

We currently offer FREE shipping within England, Scotland & Wales for all orders over £20.  



Shipping to the EU or beyond

Customs Charges – if you’ve organised a delivery onward outside of the UK please be aware they will be subject to additional charges upon delivery (such as customs duties, local taxes). 


Please note that the recipient of the play mat is responsible for paying any customs charges on arrival.  


The courier / customs agents will not release the delivery until this is settled. 


We are not able to advise on export options or costs as they vary by country you will need to investigate this before placing your order.


There are a growing number of firms who will provide a local UK address for your order and they will support all the onward shipping & customs clearance. Any use of these firms is entirely at your own risk


What are your boxed measurements & weight? 

Large play mats: 5.6kg. 142cm x 20cm x 20cm

Round play mats: 3.6kg. 142cm x 20cm x 20cm

Medium play mats: 2.6kg. 104cm x 18cm x 18cm
